Optimising gut health – Part 1 of 2

In Episode #141 we hear from three Gastroenterologists as part of a two part series on optimising gut health – Dr Sarina Pasricha, Dr Alan Desmond and Dr Will Bulsiewicz.

Optimising Gut Health - Part 1

As these were by far some of the most popular episodes to date my team and I went back through and pulled out the most important parts and brought them together into this 2 part series.

In Part 1 (this episode) we cover:

  • What the microbiome is
  • What dysbiosis is
  • The 3 parts of dysbiosis including what’s often described as ‘leaky gut’
  • The importance of fibre
  • What short chain fatty acids are
  • Animal foods and gut health
  • The ketogenic diet and gut health
  • Kombucha
  • Bone Broth
  • Dairy
  • Gluten and IBS
  • Juice cleanses
  • Spicy food
  • Alcohol
  • and much more

Part 2 of this series is more focussed on specific gut health conditions such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD).

Happy listening. I hope you find it equal parts informative and instructive.
